About Scenic Songs: A Hiking Concert with Mark Erelli

Calling all hiking enthusiasts and music lovers!

Join Mark Erelli on the trail at Slocum’s River Reserve for an intimate live music experience in a stunning natural setting. This unplugged and acoustic show is a unique opportunity to enjoy live music in community and nature.

Trail snacks provided. The hike will be a 1.5-mile easy walk with few moderate inclines, compact dirt, and exposed roots. Our Outdoor Educators will take stops for snacks and to talk about local plant species. We will hike as a group from the parking lot and make our way to Angelica’s Overlook, where views of Slocum’s River will be the backdrop to Mark Erelli’s unplugged set

Mark Erelli has forged a colorful career by making the art of “being everywhere all the time” seem effortless. It’s hard to think of another artist who seems equally at home serving as a sideman for GRAMMY-winning artists like Paula Cole, Marc Cohn, and Josh Ritter, or producing albums for Lori McKenna, as he does writing and producing his own material, like 2019’s “By Degrees,” on which he was joined by a host of voices including Rosanne Cash and Sheryl Crow, and nominated for Song of the Year at the Americana Honors and Awards. His 2020 album Blindsided found Mark “nodding to another icon, heartland hero Tom Petty,” emphasizing “12-string guitar jangle and straightforward vocal hooks.” (Rolling Stone). An album in “the sweet spot” (Associated Press), Blindsided combines the exuberance of Erelli’s signature sound with the wisdom that comes with over 20 years of songwriting, capturing an artist at a point in his career where he is clearly digging deep and swinging for the fences.

Please note, audience size for this intimate offering is limited and pre-registration is required.
